Revue de presse

“With a more literary approach to the genre  . . . Larsson remains one of the brightest stars in the current Nordic firmament . . . perceptive touches quicken the narrative throughout, and the characterization of the bloody-minded Rebecka (who Larsson really puts through the mill here) keeps The Second Deadly Sin firmly grounded.” —Barry Forshaw, The Independent

“A ‘must read’ series for me and the novel’s ending hints at new directions for Rebecka which should shake up future books a little.” —Louise Welsh, Crimepieces

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dawn breaks in a forest in northern Sweden. Villagers gather to dispatch a rampaging bear. When the beast is brought to ground they are horrified to find the remains of a human hand inside its stomach.

In nearby Kiruna a woman is found murdered in her bed, her body a patchwork of vicious wounds, the word WHORE scrawled across the wall. Her grandson Marcus, already an orphan, is nowhere to be seen.

Grasping for clues, Rebecka Martinsson begins to delve into the victim's tragic family history. But with doubts over her mental health still lingering, she is ousted from the case by an arrogant and ambitious young prosecutor.

Before long a chance lead draws Martinsson back into the thick of the action and her legendary courage is put to the test once more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 un bonne lecture mais un livre decevant 2 mai 2014
Par Tanas
Format:Format Kindle
le livre reste plaisant a lire car les personnages principaux sont attachants et les elements historiques toujours fouilles, l'intrigue me semble en revanche un peu faible et certains rebondissements artificiels. j'espere qu'asa larsson ne s'essoufle pas car j'ai enormement apprecie les autres livres de cette serie !

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ‘How can a dog possibly scream like that?’ 5 février 2014
Par Jennifer Cameron-Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The story opens in northern Sweden with a hunt for a wounded bear: a bear that has killed Samuel Johansson’s dog. The bear is tracked, and then killed. Human remains are found in its stomach. In the nearby town of Kiruna, Sol-Britt Uusitalo has been brutally murdered, and her seven year old grandson Marcus is missing. What is the connection between these events?

Prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson is initially assigned to the murder investigation, until one of her colleagues (Carl von Post) contrives to have her removed. He takes over the investigation and Martinsson takes leave. But she doesn’t stop thinking about the case, or looking into it.

There’s a second older story woven through the novel. One hundred years earlier when Kiruna was a new town, Elina Pettersson, a young school teacher arrives determined to make a new life for herself. She falls in love, is betrayed and then brutally murdered. The story of who betrayed Elina and who murdered her and why makes sad reading.

The story moves between the contemporary investigations into Sol-Britt Uusitalo’s murder, the fate of her grandson Marcus, and the story of Elina Pettersson. The connections between the stories gradually become clearer as does the motive for murder. Rebecka Martinsson has to make a number of choices, and one of them tore at her heart (and mine).

This is my first Åsa Larsson novel, and I’ll be looking to read the others. Rebecka Martinsson is an intriguing character, as are some of the others who people the novel. Dogs are also important in this story, with one in particular being a hero. It’s black and bleak, but there’s hope as well – for some. I found this novel challenging and while I recommend it, it’s not for the squeamish.

‘The moon is like a cold white goddess in the black sky.’

I'm a big fan of Asa Larsson and feel she gets it mostly right with the character development and plotting set in the northern and remote region of Sweden. Her stories are atmospheric and her settings which take place where she was born - Kiruna, is very well written and is a significant part of the ongoing journey of the main protagonist, Rebecka Martinsson. Martinsson is a lawyer by trade and she has had some cases that have had serious impact on her mental psyche. The crimes in the stories which are five so far and its impact on the characters are dealt with in a realistic fashion.

In THE SECOND DEADLY SIN, I am unsure of what sin the author is going for in here as it seems to heavily hint at avarice which is the third deadly sin not the second. But no matter, the story has two story lines with one of them set in the past during WWI and goes into the origins of Kiruna, a mining town, that was instrumental in providing iron ore to other countries during the war. The present day investigation involves the suspicious deaths of several people throughout the most recent years and the present murder of a woman found stabbed to death in her bed. Her grandson, who probably witnessed the murder, is traumatized by the incident. The story tries to untangle the family tree to point to links to will lead to a viable motive.

What made this story less compelling was the WW1 storyline that involved a doomed school teacher. It was cliched and predictable. The present day murder case was a bit convoluted with Rebecka being pulled off the preliminary investigation for no good reason only for her to do some sleuthing on her own. The office politics thatI usually enjoy was more of a nuisance in this entry. The ending was a mixed bag with over the top action sequences. Those who decry the author of animal cruelty in her books (not me) will have a field day with this one. In my decision to rate this book three stars, I am basing it more on story development rather than character development which continues to move along strongly. I look forward to Asa Larsson's next book. My favorite of hers continues to be UNTIL THY WRATH BE PAST.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's GREED, according to author Larsson 7 octobre 2014
Par Kenneth C. Mahieu - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the fifth in the prosecutor Rebecka Martinson of Kiruna, Sweden series. From my perspective, it is the most enjoyable, with a lighter touch - despite the title - than the previous ones, thank goodness. But, winter is approaching, there are some strange sounds out there, and then there's the concluding pursuit through some dark, scary woods. So it does have its share of Swedish doom and gloom. The light moments however give more than adequate relief and come via a passel of pet dogs and Marcus, a seven year old boy, survivor of the violent murder of his guardian grandmother, Sol-Britt. As self-therapy following the violent event he has witnessed Marcus pretends that he is a dog, and he is delighted to bark, eat on all fours and even sleep in the kennel at night with his trusted friends. The story continually shifts between the present and events that happened in the same town 90 years ago, events which focused on the death of Marcus's great, great-grandmother, Elina. And it turns out, there have been other violent deaths in the family tree which links Marcus and Elina. Why? What is the link? Many of the characters in "Sin" have appeared in earlier books; they are all well done, including an evil bureaucrat who is attempting to derail Rebecka's career (another deadly sin - oh, and let me add that despite the title this book does not have the strong moral-sin-righteousness tone that some may expect from such a title). The plot is very interesting and Rebecka is stronger than in previous books. And she seems to be drawn to police officer Erickson a bit more, while beau Mans faithfully pines away in Stockholm. What is up with that ? I strongly recommend this book and it can be read as a stand-alone very easily. I also suggest that readers check out Kiruna on Google Maps; "walk" around town a bit to get a feel for the place. I just wish Larsson would crank these books out a bit faster.

The Second Deadly Sin is set in northern Sweden and opens with the hunt for a wounded bear. When it is finally brought down, the hunters make a grisly discovery. The story then moves to the seemingly disconnected but equally horrific murder of a woman and her missing grandson. Prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson is initially assigned to the case but a less skilled but extremely ambitious rival manages to claim it for himself. Martinsson refuses to take a less important case and instead decides to take her vacation time. However, she can't let it go. She discovers there are threads tying the bear hunt and the murder together and that they may also be linked to other sudden and unexplained deaths.

The novel alternates between Martinsson's investigations in the present and the story of the love affair between a young school teacher and an important mining official in the years leading up to WWI and the subsequent unsolved murder of the teacher. As Martinsson digs deeper, she begins to suspect that these events of the past are somehow related to those in the present and that, if she doesn't solve the case quickly, there will be more deaths.

This is the fifth in this series by Swedish author Asa Larsson but it is the first I have read and it worked very well as a standalone. Larsson has a deft hand with descriptions of both time and place. Her forays into the past are very well written and seem likely to be true to the time period including her portrayal of the pre-WWI cultural and class values. The story is both intelligent and suspenseful and, like so many of the thrillers coming out of the Scandinavian countries, very dark. But it is with her characters where Larsson shines. She has created a group of memorable characters who are at once sympathetic and flawed and who make us care about what happens to them. Best of all, I never guessed who the murderer was until the big reveal at the end, something that happens too rarely. Definitely a high recommendation from me especially for fans of Nordic Noir.
